Onventis Supplier enables the efficient integration of customer-specific supplier ranges and conditions in the procurement process of Onventis Buyer, as well as in other e-procurement systems with Ariba or SAP. Static catalogs (BMECat, Excel, CSV) can be imported and connected, as well as supplier shops via OCI and cXML Punchouts. The integration of OCI5 catalogs (“Background Search“) in the index-based search of Onventis Buyer systems supports retrievability of your products in punchout scenarios.
For the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) of orders, order changes, order confirmations, and invoices, the openTRANS-Standard is on offer. Conversions of openTRANS receipts are possible in other formats like EDIFACT, xCBL, cXML, SAP iDoc or CSV. For receipt data exchange, in addition to e-mails, http/s and FTP formats are supported.
As an Onventis Buyer supplier, you will be notified via e-mail of new price inquiries and free-text orders (Spot Buy) of your customers. You have the possibility to register all requests directly in Onventis System, assign a bid number, and work with all bid positions, including not bidding, or adding new positions. The final offer will be transmitted by the system to Onventis Buyer, which can then create an order and send it back to you.
Customized conditions can be data-base imported in the Onventis Buyer system of your customer (e.g., CSV, Excel). Prices for your catalog articles can also be saved via a web service with real-time information from your ERP-System. The same goes for inventory and availability information from your ERP. This reduces data handling, and offers your customer current prices and availability information at any time.
